This statement has to be one of the most lazy, thoughtless cliches in all of sports fandom. Just because fans want their team to improve or because they criticize moves or the lack thereof does not make those fans "spoiled." It makes them passionate. That's the definition of being a fan.

Straw Man, with a False Dichotomy thrown in for good measure. If your idea of "thoughtful" is simply combining logical fallacies, I am proud to be considered "thoughtless".


But this is kind of the problem with being merely passionate--it tends to overcloud rational thought.

Red Wings fans have to be the most spoiled fans in all of sport.

I think I remember reading once that, out of all of the states, Michigan has contributed the most to current players in the NHL, with Minnesota being a close second. You hear a lot about the Northeastern schools like Boston College and Maine, too.

I know his thumbs broken but I still can't find any info on how it happened? Sounds like a slash to me but that is just making an educated guess.


I think he broke it when his hand touched the ice as he was falling. If you look at the replay they were showing last night, as his hand hits the ice it looks like his glove meets the surface and bends back his thumb (sorry, this is not a very good description). I think they were saying he's had this injury before, so maybe he's more prone to it.
